This summer, the athleticism of Gabe Brown and Aaron Henry has been impressive while the intrigue over 6-foot-11 Marcus Bingham Jr. has been high. For Loyer, though, Moneyball is more of a warm-up for his first season at Michigan State. For a point guard that is listed generously at 6-foot, there are few chances to create oohs and ahhs. “I’m not gonna win any layup lines,” Loyer said on Tuesday. “I’ve learned that pretty quickly.”

Michigan State doesn’t have the best offensive line in the Big Ten, but the potential is there for the Spartans. Guys like Tyler Higby, David Beedle, Luke Campbell and Kevin Jarvis have extremely high ceilings, but Cole Chewins is one who doesn’t quite get the respect he deserves.

I feel safe with the following projection: Aaron Henry is MSU’s most Big Ten-ready freshman. He’ll have the most immediate impact. And his considerable minutes on the wing will impact the rest of MSU’s rotation.

Following a game in the Moneyball Pro-Am, Tillman was talking to media members outside the locker rooms at Aim High Sports in Dimondale. The Michigan State sophomore was asked about the possibility of sharing the same frontcourt this season as Ward, his junior teammate. “We talk about that, I think, either every day or every other day and we argue who’s going to play the 4 (power forward),” Tillman said with a smile, “and I think I’m going to play the 4 and he’s going to play the 5 (center).”

After a slog of a game for the better part of three hours, MSU and quarterback Andrew Maxwell said “it’s time to start trying” in the final minutes of the game. Maxwell and Co. pieced together a 75-yard drive that ended with a shovel pass touchdown to Le’Veon Bell to tie the game up at 10-10 with 1:08 remaining. That was inarguably Maxwell’s greatest drive as a Spartan, going 8/9 passing with 69 yards to knot up the game.

In 2016, Michigan State finished a dismal 3-9, but recovered with a surprising 10-3 record in 2017. Many have called the Spartans a dark-horse contender for the Big Ten title. However, others also have the Green and White finishing fourth in the Big Ten East.

Michigan State lost just one senior starter on offense from last season, but it was a substantial departure. Center Brian Allen, a three-year starter with experience at all three interior positions, was selected by the Los Angeles Rams in the fourth round of the NFL draft. He was a team captain, the anchor of the offensive line and his spot is the most difficult for the Spartans to replace heading into this season.

For the last two seasons, Michigan State had an enormous question mark at the most important position on the field. Two years ago, expected starter Tyler O’Connor fell apart and none of his backups could stay healthy. Last year, Brian Lewerke had the job but started the season on an extremely short leash. But it didn’t take long for that to change

The Spartans offense returns almost fully intact. Lewerke welcomes back running back LJ Scott, and three starting wideouts (Felton Davis III, Darrell Stewart and Cody White). The Spartans also bring back four starters on an offensive line that improved as the season went along.

This game is now known for one play – Hey Diddle Diddle, Mike Sadler up the middle. But gimmick play and catchy name aside, this game was a monstrous victory for the Spartans. The tenth game of the 2013 Rose Bowl season was a daunting one as the Spartans never walked into Lincoln and flew out with a win. Well, until this day, of course.

It was late in the first half of a playoff game last fall and Euclid (Ohio) High School had a comfortable lead with the ball deep in its own territory. The plan was simple – run the ball and kill some clock before heading into the locker room. Eleven seconds and 92 yards later – after giving 11 defenders a look at the No. 42 stitched to the back of his jersey – Brandon Wright was celebrating with teammates in the end zone.
